Christian (Mobsters) Slater went for the jeans-and-sneakers look when he drove himself to the Roxbury in Hollywood in March. By June, for a dinner in L.A., he had graduated to the stretch-limo chauffeur-of-the-year effect.

Excuse me, are you Pippi Wrongstocking? Daryl Hannah went to a party at the Los Angeles Children's Museum and took the occasion to dress up—like a 5-year-old. She got the dressed-down look down pat, though, heading off from L.A. airport earlier this year but still insisted on showing us her knees.
